Having raised this briefly in the CB, I think it might in fact not be quite as simple as I thought, so I make bold to ask sibling monks :-
Is there a way to make the contents of PST files available to Perl, so I can do all those Practical Extraction and Report things with them in a way that I understand, rather than tripping over the MS black box? The alternative, exporting from outlook to CSV, then re-importing is problematic though not completely ruled out, because I have multiple outlook directories (some pretty huge). I'd really like a Perl solution because I sort of understand Perl. Is there a module that makes a PST file available to Perl? Or some other Cunning Plan (tm)?
